We have expertise in providing customized dashboards for Turbine monitoring and control, Generator and Plant electrical system monitoring and control, Boiler combustion and Water and Exhaust Treatment.   We offer operator level console as well as act as a centralized platform in case of multiple facilities thus catering to entire needs of the company.

Plant Information Management System

Sensys offers state of the art Plant Information Management System with advanced historian capabilities that allows data collection, data storage, data archiving and instant data retrieval upon user request. Power generation and distribution involve a large number of parameters and KPIs to be calculated and controlled. IntelliMAX enables clients to centralize data from various data sources and provides a central platform to access historical data. User can perform advanced trending and charting analysis on critical parameters such as Load Factor, Capacity Utilization Index, Availability Factor, Specific Fuel Consumption, Lubrication Oil Consumption, Avg. Planned Heat Rate, Plant Efficiency, Station Reliability Factor, SAIFI, SAIDI, etc. Customized Reports can be generated from these KPIs. Thus data can be used to perform in-depth analysis on both processes and operations to get better insights and improve productivity and efficiency.

Condition Based Maintenance

Condition based maintenance is a maintenance strategy used to improve the effectiveness of maintenance programs and reduce the life cycle costs of assets. It plays a key role in Power Industry where the goal is to maximize the performance of different assets such as Pumps, Compressors, Boilers, Cooling Towers, Heat Exchangers, Generators, Engines, Turbines, etc. IntelliMAX caters to Condition based maintenance utilizing the real-time data associated with the asset such as Running hours, Temperature, Pressure, Vibration, Speed, Flow-rate, Voltage, Current, Stress, etc. and analyzing these to determine the state of assets. These parameters are regularly monitored on real-time basis and the values of the mentioned parameters are compared against their set points to see deviations. Trends can be plotted to analyze the behavior and thus predict the maintenance.

Integration with ERP 

The power of real-time data is fully harnessed when it is utilized not only at plant floor but also with other manufacturing and business applications. IntelliMAX has the capability to integrate the plant floor data with other manufacturing and business applications such as SAP, Maximo etc. This facilitates information sharing across various business functions thus improving coordination and ensuring faster decision making.  In Power industry it is vital to integrate all real time information such as Running Hours, Alarms and Event Notifications etc. with ERP systems. In addition, condition based maintenance of assets such as Pumps, Compressors, Boilers, Heat Exchangers, Generators, Turbines etc. are a key requirement in Power Industry. IntelliMAX EMI (being SAP and Maximo certified) completely addresses the needs of Plant Floor – ERP integration.
